Wacky Packages!I just got my book Wacky Packages,Published by Abrams Press.Quite simply,Wackies move me.I love 'em.What kind of person likes Wackies?I don't know.They convey some timeless,crazy feeling for me.Probably from my childhood,these feelings come from.I love all the crazy,demented characters on the cards.The realistic graphic representation of the products,combined with a gag makes me feel privy to some inside joke about society.Yeah,I'm wacky too.Peace out everyone.Keep being Wacky,it is our only hope!!

Hi Greg , I collected wacky packages as a kid. I could not wait to go to the cornor drug store as a kid every friday after school to buy 2 packs with the dime my mom would give me. I always dreamed of buying a hole box , but never had the money.
As years went by, they were forgoten until this year (feb. 2008) when I was in my attic and came across them in a old cigar box. WOW , DID IT BRING BACK THE MEMORIES!!! I got on e bay just to see if I could find a couple for the heck of it. I found over 1200 for sale!! I could not beleave it. I then googled wacky packages and found this site. Now I am hooked on these things more than ever! I am now trying to catch up on the history behind these cards and putting sets together now . I trying to collect them all ,Die cuts to the ANS and flashbacks. The 1970s are the most special for me . THANKS GREG for all of your hard work on all the info. that you share with us. I have found your forum back in April 2008 and enjoy it very much. I dont post much on it because it takes me forever to type a sentence. My login name is ronlisa. THANKS AGAIN GREG.

I collected the whole set of wacky ads in 1969 when i was 9 yrs old,except the good and empty.I never even new what card #25 was until i came to this web site.It was such a pleasure to finally see what the holy grail of wacky ads is.It sucks to here that they cost 500 and up though.I probably spent a whole 10.00 back then to get the whole set and a ton of gum, which seemed like $500 to me then i remember.It was hard to save up $2.00 to buy a model in the young model builders club i rember. Well thanks for the nice site and look down memory lane, if anyone needs some cards i may have some to sell, and if anyone wants to sell a good and empty let me know.A great day to all.mike
